Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

The Cobra is the wild short tower along the approach path to Ancient Art. How on earth is this thing still standing? Well named-it looks exactly like a hooded cobra rearing up to strike(which is appropriate considering the seriousness of the route).

Unfortunately, sometime during the first week of August 2014, it is suspected that The Cobra had succumb to severe weather and thunderstorms. The once proud, albeit precarious tower is no longer. There were no injuries and no one was present to witness it's sudden demise. This page will be left to preserve it's history.

Getting There

Follow the Ancient Art approach to the base of the formartion, which will be completely obvious.
